Like Rasta, but thinner! This DK-weight yarn shares Rasta’s lightly-felted, single-ply construction and many of the same gorgeous watercolor-multi colorways, but its lighter weight means it’s fantastic for garments, shawls, and other lightweight applications.
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
